Two Brit Awards – well deserved Rag ‘n’ Bone Man!


HUGE congratulations to hip-hop bluesman Rag ‘n’ Bone man on winning not one, but TWO Brit Awards, scooping ‘Best Breakthrough Act’ and ‘The Brits Critics Choice winner for 2017’.

Having been a prolific underground name for a couple of years, honing a ferocious live reputation through guitar wielding solo performances, Rag ‘n’ Bone first performed in the fields in 2014 on our Chai Wallah stage, making a monumental return in 2016 on our Main Stage.

His hit soul ballad Human has been making huge waves in the UK Chart, with his success set to soar!

We look to seeing what 2017 has in store for Rag ‘n’ Bone man!
